When Blair Dobson was a child growing up in St. Louis, she would go to estate sales with her father every weekend. She couldn\u2019t help noticing the designs and patterns on decades-old draperies, wallpaper and furnishings \u2013 and she liked them.

\u201cAs I got older, my love and appreciation for this style never faded, but I recognized an opportunity in the market for a young, vibrant, fresh look inspired by these classics,\u201d she says. To that end, Dobson recently introduced Hello Dobson, \u201can emerging lifestyle brand of fashion, home d\u00e9cor and accessories inspired by the Midwest.\u201d

Dobson\u2019s designs include wallpaper, fabric and throw pillows. Her patterns feature bold colors and rely on a number of motifs, such as repeating Dalmatian spots, latticework, pineapples and pagodas. In the near future, she anticipates adding monogrammed Lucite trays and embroidered tabletop accessories such as dinner napkins and hand towels. She also carries tassel earrings and clothing based on the same designs.

Dobson refers to her style aesthetic as \u201cclassy but approachable\u201d and notes that much of it was influenced by those early father-daughter visits to Selkirk Auctioneers & Appraisers and other local auction houses.

\u201cMy dad is the kind of guy who can go and talk to anyone anywhere and immediately befriend them,\u201d she says. \u201cReally, it\u2019s that friendliness and approachability my parents taught me that Hello Dobson is all about: classic but approachable.\u201d

Although Dobson says her current work fulfills that childhood passion, she started her career in the nonprofit sector and then worked in real estate before launching her brand in April of this year. \u201cI think for most people, their career, especially their early career, is really a journey about learning what type of work really satisfies our souls,\u201d she says. \u201cIn each position I\u2019ve held, I\u2019ve been drawn to the creative, inventive and people-oriented aspects of the job. Deciding to launch this venture was really about bringing the truly fulfilling elements of those roles together into a brand and business.\u201d She adds that her intention is to build Hello Dobson into an international brand.

In creating her work, Dobson takes a number of approaches: \u201cMy design process is truly a collaborative learning process. What I mean by that is, on any given day, I\u2019ll take note of patterns, textures or spaces I see that speak to this idea of being classy but approachable. Then a few times a month, I\u2019ll sketch out some rough drafts of concepts floating around in my head. Sometimes I\u2019ll rely heavily on my notes; other times it is completely free-flowing. It really depends on the day.\u201d

Once she sketches a concept, she asks for feedback from friends and family, making changes and refining the design based on their comments. The Hello Dobson Instagram account (@hellodobson) sometimes offers sneak peeks of new concepts, and she welcomes comments to further inform her work before she unveils the final product. \u201cThe last step is deciding where and when a print fits in,\u201d she says. \u201cIn those cases, we\u2019ll sit on it until the appropriate time or season.\u201d Best-sellers include hot-pink pineapple pillows and Kelly green lattice pillows, and during the holiday season, the red-and-green fox-hunting print is popular, she adds.

Customers can find Hello Dobson online at hellodobson.com, as well as style and entertaining tips, recipes and DIY projects that can be done to complement Hello Dobson d\u00e9cor items. \u201cAnother fun way to connect with Hello Dobson is through our Instagram,\u201d Dobson says. \u201cWe typically post every day and love sharing our new collections and sneak peeks here. As far as holiday sales go, we\u2019ll run a 15 percent-off storewide sale with coupon code \u2018laduenews\u2019 from Dec. 2 through Dec. 10.\u201d In addition, select Hello Dobson products are available at Lusso in Carondelet Plaza.

No matter how big Hello Dobson gets, its Midwestern roots will always guide the brand. \u201cWe love collaborating with St. Louis designers and businesses and make all of our products locally,\u201d Dobson adds. \u201cWe are always open to custom design projects or ideas that aren\u2019t seen on our website.\u201d

Mac McNally says he\u2019s always liked to tinker. He recalls \u201cbuilding mousetrap cars in my parents\u2019 basement\u201d and taking a metals-focused sculpture class while studying at the University of Minnesota. \u201cAt the time,\u201d McNally says, \u201cI didn\u2019t realize that art was a passion that I would go on to pursue.\u201d Now, the Missouri craftsman known as 2000 Man creates nontraditional, quirky pieces that are equal parts artwork and furniture, often centered on one beloved hunk of metal: a pinball machine.

\u201cA good friend of mine owns a vending arcade business,\u201d McNally explains of the nontraditional source of his inspiration. \u201cI started seeing old, dilapidated pinball games just sitting around his warehouse. Pinball is such a beautiful medium; it was a shame to see these machines just sitting there not being appreciated. I asked him if I could start experimenting with some of them, and he said go for it.\u201d And so the pinball table was born.

As showcased on his Instagram feed (@2000.man), McNally turns pinball machines into coffee and end tables, occasionally even with working lights. \u201cI am self-taught when it comes to wiring, so sometimes the [lighting] experiments don\u2019t always work out,\u201d he says, noting the fun of the ever-different experience of his work. Price varies, starting at around $700. His craftsman skills extend into other forms of custom tables outside the arcade realm, but all include at least a hint of that midcentury modern vibe.

\u201cMidcentury modern is definitely where my style is centered,\u201d McNally says. \u201cBut when someone asks me to create a new piece, I try to match [his or her] style as best I can. For example, my friend asked me to make her an outdoor table for a kitchen workspace. I took the legs from an old pinball machine and built a rolling rustic table with barn wood. It sounds weird, but it worked well.\u201d

The theme of reusing materials comes up a lot when examining McNally\u2019s work. Although the arcade pieces are an obvious upcycle, even the wood he works with \u2013 mostly white oak, red oak, black oak and black walnut \u2013 is often locally sourced. Future projects will include black oak from a tree that recently blew over on his father\u2019s land at the Ozarks, for example. It\u2019s all about what\u2019s available.

\u201cWhile in school, I worked at the [University of Minnesota\u2019s] Weisman Art Museum, a beautiful building designed by Frank Gehry,\u201d McNally explains. \u201cHe is primarily known for his architecture, but [he] also has designed some interesting furniture, using wood. His architectural style started with the incorporation of basic construction materials such as chain-link fencing and sheet metal. Basically, products that were readily available. I utilize a similar process, in that I use what I can find, such as unused arcade parts, and repurpose them into new pieces.\u201d

Although McNally\u2019s shop is in Lake of the Ozarks, St. Louisans are only a few clicks away from his work \u2013 locals also might have spotted one of his tables at Rise Coffee House in The Grove. His social media presence is full of an adoring audience amazed at his one-of-a-kind pieces. \u201cI love when people comment on my pieces!\u201d he says. \u201cAnytime someone shares my photo or comments, I try to interact. Social media is the best way for a small business to gain traction when you are just getting started. It levels the playing field. If I offer up something that people like, and others appreciate it, then good reviews [or] word of mouth lead to more opportunities.\u201d

Work by McNally can be found online, as well as at John Elliott Interiors at the Lake of the Ozarks and at South Jefferson Mid Century Modern in St. Louis. According to McNally, \u201cBoth \u2026 have very different styles, but appreciated what I was creating.\u201d Additionally, custom orders are welcome for \u201cpinball or otherwise.\u201d

\u201cWhat started out as just a hobby has now turned into something a little bit bigger,\u201d 2000 Man concludes.

Mary Joyce Mathis of MJM Design Company redesigned the kitchen of a well-traveled client in St. Charles who desired an Asian-inspired space. \u201cThe first thing she told me about her kitchen remodel was that she wanted to have room to seat her entire extended family for a holiday meal,\u201d Mathis says.

The room features bamboo floors, a bamboo window treatment, a wild sea-green granite countertop on the island and a black matte finish on the perimeter of the countertop. Mathis removed the existing cabinetry to make way for brandy-finished maple cabinets. Light fixtures include metallic pendants above the island and a Chinese red drum shade above the sink for a pop of color. \u201cOne thing I think makes a huge impact are the black doors above the fridge [and microwave],\u201d Mathis says, adding, \u201cThey\u2019re supposed to mimic a bamboo reed. That\u2019s what they do, and I think it\u2019s striking.\u201d

In an opposing wall not pictured, Mathis included red recessed shelves to maximize space. Next to the shelves is an oriental-style double cabinet to house the client\u2019s many cookbooks and travel keepsakes. Mathis says she and the client ultimately hoped to create an interesting space in a compact area of the kitchen.

\"Narrative
Narrative Furniture 111816

Many of us can readily recall the furniture in our childhood home \u2013 the look, feel and scent of your family\u2019s dining room table, for example, and all the special memories that happened around it. That\u2019s the kind of nostalgia Narrative Furniture aims to evoke with its handmade, heirloom-quality creations. \u201cWe design and build furniture that we hope will be passed on \u2013 and with it, the memories,\u201d says founder and chief executive officer Andy Kim.

Kim, a Los Angeles native, moved to St. Louis four years ago and fell in love with the Gateway City\u2019s rich history of manufacturing and entrepreneurial spirit. He launched Narrative Furniture under the umbrella company Larson Financial Foundation, where he is managing director. The foundation operates as a fund that invests in startup companies that benefit their surrounding communities \u2013 a mission that Kim is passionate about sharing in St. Louis.

Amid the historic charm of the 15,000-square-foot former Riefling Automobile Co. building in St. Louis\u2019 Fox Park neighborhood, Narrative Furniture designs and builds contemporary, industrial-chic pieces for retail businesses, as well as residential properties. \u201cWe love building dining and coffee tables because people are usually gathered around them, but we enjoy building consoles, desks, accent tables, counters and cocktail tables, as well,\u201d Kim says, adding that the company also creates kitchen accessories, including cheese boards and butcher blocks, as well as flower boxes.

Constructed by a six-person team led by a master craftsman with more than 40 years of professional woodworking experience, Narrative Furniture\u2019s handmade pieces consist of solid premium hardwood and finished or raw steel \u2013 all for only about 10 percent more than prices at big-box furniture retailers, Kim notes. \u201cWe only use the most premium hardwoods, ensuring that the color, grain, moisture content and integrity meet our standards,\u201d he says, noting that about 90 percent of the company\u2019s lumber is sourced from Missouri. \u201cWe build with the understanding that the outcome will only be as good as the materials used.\u201d

The company\u2019s signature lines include the Lunar Form and X Form collections. The Lunar Form pieces pay homage to midcentury modern design, refreshed by incorporating clean, sharp lines and adding dimension and depth through sculpted top edges. The collection comes in a variety of dimensions and hardwood options, such as maple and walnut.

\u201cI absolutely love the tone, grain and feel \u2013 especially in walnut,\u201d Kim says. And the X Form pieces are simple and clean, with perfectly proportional and functional design. \u201cThe steel base of the X Form allows room for knees, making it possible for as many [people] to squeeze around the table as possible.\u201d

Narrative Furniture draws design inspiration from the city\u2019s surroundings, such as local bridges\u2019 cross-braced steel support structures that influenced the X Form table. \u201cOur design process starts with an idea on a sketchbook or napkin,\u201d Kim says. \u201cWe then design in software, where we make adjustments and draw exact dimensions and solidify proportions. In the design phase, we are constantly thinking about structural integrity and functionality.\u201d

Once a design is completed, a full-scale prototype or a 3-D model is built \u2013 and if the team likes what it sees, the piece goes into production. \u201cThe process of designing and building custom work is similar, but much more collaborative with the [retail or residential] clients to ensure we build what they envision,\u201d Kim explains, adding that most of the collection-line pieces can be made in five to 10 days, while custom work typically takes up to three weeks.

Narrative Furniture has created an array of unique pieces for local businesses, including a custom waterfall walnut slab counter for Sump Coffee near Fox Park and custom communal tables and benches for Gezellig Tap House and Bottle Shop in The Grove. The company also constructed pieces for the residence of Mary McKay, dean of Washington University in St. Louis\u2019 George Warren Brown School of Social Work, and her husband, Jan Browne.

\u201cThey each gave us a lot of design freedom, allowing us to have a ton of fun in the design and build,\u201d Kim says.

Narrative Furniture\u2019s goal is for clients to feel connected to their furniture and make great memories around it. \u201cWe love how furniture can often hold so many memories and take on very personal meaning,\u201d Kim says.

Moving forward, Kim hopes to leave a legacy of memorable pieces at residences and retailers throughout the city. \u201cWe want to design and build things that last and that St. Louis can be proud of.\u201d

decaholic luminaries

Make your winter garden path more inviting to holiday guests with cheery, flickering, candle luminaries. Although we\u2019ve used every sort of garden illumination over the years, candle luminaries remain our favorite. Whether you\u2019re considering outdoor lighting for d\u00e9cor or for safety purposes, here\u2019s how to light your abode this winter in a truly illuminating fashion.

The classic luminary is a simple white paper bag with sand and an approximate four-hour votive. Fancy luminary bags, available in many colors and imaginative designs, can be purchased locally or on the internet. Although paper bags are single use, they require no storage. Conversely, rigid plastic luminaries do require storage space in the off-season. Remote-control, battery-operated votives are simple, but drain batteries quickly if not properly switched off after every use.

One simple yet elegant reusable luminary, made from a canning jar, is illustrated on Bob Vila\u2019s how-to website, bobvila.com. Birdfeeder chain for hanging is attached below the lid ring with wire. Added interest comes with dried beans as the filler. Any nonflammable granular material may be used as long as it has some density to support the candle and provide stability to the holder. Try Epsom salts, pebbles, colorful aquarium rocks or shells. With inorganic fillers, add a few tablespoons of water to facilitate easy candle replacement and cleaning.

For year-round use, invest in permanent quality by buying sturdy metal candle lanterns designed for outdoor use. Open holders are well suited to flameless electric candles. Glass-walled lanterns work best for traditional wax candles when used outdoors. Scale the lantern to your space, and select a style that\u2019s companionable with your garden. For the Asian-themed courtyard of one of the columnists, the pagoda lantern from Frontgate would be the perfect choice.

If you have large permanent urns in front of your house, top them with sand, and add a cluster of straight-sided glass cylinder vases with thick pillar candles for gatherings. Add some red twig dogwood branches, magnolia boughs or twisted willow for height. After the gathering, remove the candles and replace them with a collection of pine cones and holly berry sprigs for a lasting winter design.

The romantic aura from genuine flaming wax candles, though, demands caution. Start your candles safety by trimming wicks to \u00bc inch. Long wicks can cause uneven burning and premature meltdown. Never use unprotected candles in drafty locations, near draperies or close to other flammables. Glass containers help minimize risk by containing sudden meltdowns or flare-ups without compromising light or beauty. Quality American-made candles will carry a fire-safety label. Don\u2019t be tempted by cheap decorative candles, as they\u2019re more likely to have sudden flares that can start a house fire. If you use them, always place them on a large fireproof platter or tray to contain spillage. Also, place candles out of reach of small children. Have an up-to-date fire extinguisher handy, and make sure the batteries in your smoke detector are fresh \u2013 try to change them annually at the same time. For more candle safety tips, visit the National Candle Association\u2019s website at candles.org/fire-safety-candles.

Welcome to the 2016 Ladue News Show House, a historic property at 4388 Westminster Place in the Central West End, completed in 1897. The Georgian-style home is located in the celebrated neighborhood of Fullerton\u2019s Westminster Place.

The home was originally designed by architects George D. Barnett, John I. Haynes and Thomas P. Barnett, who famously designed the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis. The home was first sold to Julia C. January on March 13, 1897, and its three stories feature seven bedrooms, two remodeled bathrooms and a remodeled kitchen. The yellow-brick exterior displays two-story Corinthian columns that flank either side of a projecting pavilion and Palladian window.

As was typical for homes built in the late 19th century, most rooms include a fireplace. The central hall leads to a staircase with a landing overlooking the front lawn. A spacious office or den on the second floor is lit by large bay windows, and the third floor boasts an expansive bonus room. Plans for this home are similar to the existing houses in the neighborhood, even if their fa\u00e7ades differ greatly.

The name of the neighborhood, Fullerton\u2019s Westminster Place, might sound familiar. According to Charles C. Savage\u2019s book Architecture of the Private Streets of St. Louis, it contains \u201cmore residences of architectural interest than any other comparable blocks in the city.\u201d The homes reflect a variety of architectural trends such as Romanesque, Italian Renaissance and Colonial Georgian.

The neighborhood, originally private, is named after Union Army veteran and attorney Joseph Scott Fullerton, who purchased the tract of land in 1882 from the Charter Oak Insurance Co. of Hartford, Connecticut. By 1895, 31 houses had been constructed. After Fullerton\u2019s death two years later, his daughter, Mary, completed the neighborhood\u2019s development, which includes the former home of famed poet T.S. Eliot. Eliot\u2019s parents and siblings resided at 4446 Westminster Place from 1905 to 1919, though Eliot lived there only a short time before leaving St. Louis for Harvard University.

Savage writes that \u201cnearly every important architect working at the turn of the century is represented\u201d in Fullerton\u2019s Westminster Place. Barnett, Haynes and Barnett headed a prominent architectural firm in the city that\u2019s credited for the design of many hotels throughout the country. Thomas Barnett even designed the Palace of the Liberal Arts for the St. Louis World\u2019s Fair.

From its inspired architects and vibrant fa\u00e7ade to its storied neighborhood, there is bountiful history connected to 4388 Westminster Place. Ever-evolving in the 119 years since it was built, the house will evolve once more as this year\u2019s Show House.
